Ralph Reed may have seen his political aspirations go up in flames thanks to his years of exploiting his Religious Right cronies for the benefit of corrupt lobbyist Jack Abramoff but, as we noted last week, that hasn’t stopped a slew of right-wing leaders from signing on to participate in his upcoming Faith and Freedom Conference.
And Reed, whose ego and penchant for hyperbole have been the one constant throughout his career, is here to tell you, the ACLJ’s Jordan Sekulow, and anyone who will listen that they had better plan on attending his awesome conference because it is not only going to change America, but it will change the lives of all those in attendance:
As you know, I was at the Christian Coalition in the 90s and I worked on the Bush campaign in 2000 and ’04 and I decided to take that knowledge and that experience and, for lack of a better term, create a 21st Century Christian Coalition meets MoveOn.org with a smattering of the NRA.
So the Faith and Freedom Coalition is a grassroots permanent public policy organization that combines pro-family activists with what we might call the Tea Party activists uniting on the economic agenda as well as the pro-family agenda. We now have 400,000 people involved in the organization; we have state organizations in 23 states and as you mentioned, we’re having our meeting, national gathering in DC September 10-11.
We’re going to have over 60 of the leading conservative and pro-family activist leaders and organizers in the nation and I urge you to be here. It’s going to change the life of our nation and it will change your life if you are able to be there.
